Recently, we posted about our interest in 'collaborative' blogging, where 'Citizen Generated Media (CGM)' would be profiled and publicized at the LAFD News & Information blog.
Similarly, we've been trying to get word out regarding California's 'Safely Surrendered Baby Law', which allows a person to give up an unwanted newborn (less than three-days old) without fear of arrest or prosecution at a designated site, including any Neighborhood Fire Station in Los Angeles.
In an effort that proved synergistic, Tony Pierce of LAist recently conducted an interview with LAFD Captain Mike Castillo of Fire Station 20 in Echo Park.
Coarsely yet accurately entitled "Don't Throw Your Baby in The Garbage", the amateur video has proven popular, and clearly underscores our interest in working collaboratively with local photographers and bloggers to publicly share content of public interest.
Our thanks to Mr. Pierce for creating and distributing the video, and for his sentiment regarding our blog. Our fraternal appreciation is also offered to Captain Castillo for agreeing to the spontaneous interview.
